Pili Hu (later CTO of Initium Media, Director of Initium Lab) shared a preliminary version of Hong Kong legco dataset analysis, which later became the project of Analysing Hong Kong Legislative Council Voting Records and won the Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) 2016 Award. In this talk, Pili demonstrated the HK Legco Member’s Voting Preference Variation by visualizing the data from Legco. By illustrating the complete production pipeline of the “political spectrum” graph, Pili brought several key insights to the audience about the workflows and perspectives during the data analytics process. In the end of the talk, Pili also provided other alternative application of data journalism with detailed examples to present how news could be produced in the future.
